​​​COLLEGE STATION – A new Academy store has opened its doors June 22, 2017​, just south on Texas 6 from its previous location.

The new location is 71,000 sf, which is 20,000 sf larger than the previous location.

New additions to the store include things like a new reel bar in their fishing section and a larger fan shop that carries pro team items and apparel.

The new store is part of the Oldham Goodwin Group's 54-acre Providence Park at Research Valley development.

Store Director Ed McDowell said finding land close to the previous site was a priority when the retailer was looking to relocate with the aim of opening a bigger store to provide a better shopping experience.

The store opened at eight a.m. Friday June 23, 2017 after a ribbon cutting.​
